JEd-. Tel. On the subject or temper
ance I hr sometime thought that Its
greatest wM not brought wit, an fre
quently uy (lie, advocates of temporaries,
as 1U secondary evil. The great evil is
inward as spiritual. It Is common for
those who argue against Intemperance, to
describe the bloated countenance, the pov
erty iand wretchedness of his condition,
and truely Oils Is a sad picture. They
describe his disolste and cheerless home,
his heart broken wifoand ragged children,
but these outward evils-dreadful as they
scorn-are nothing in comparison to the
evil ilia exist in the soul. The miseriea
of intern ppmnce not seen anght, tin
less viewed from this stand point. Among
tho evils of intemperance, much intempcr
ance is given to the poverty of which ft is
the cauS). But title evil, great as it is, is
light in comparison to the essential evil of
inteninerance which should ever be bourne
in minii by its true advocates. Poverty
has been the lot of many a christian, but
how different is this, when brought on by
the use of intoxicating liquors He that
makes himself a beggar, by having made
himself a butc, is miserable indeed, anil

"OFFICK OF PllKBlDRNT OP WIS
CONSIN JiniTOHH' AND ruura.
AunniTuiH Milwaukee, Feb, 20,
1880. To Senator and Members
of Conobkbs: It becomes toy pain
ful official duty to address you a few
linos, and if you will pay attention
and allow the ideas herein advanced
to gently enter your several systems
without the aid of a surgical opera
i inn nr a. shot crun. it will be a cussed
sight more than we.have aright to
expect. At the annual meeting of
tha Wisconsin Editors' and publish
ers' association, held last June at
OsltV nun. after the members had
been formally admitted to the insane
asylum, they passed the following
whereases and resolutions, between
free lunches and picnics and made
me the humble instrument of fortune
to bring the aforesaid whereases and
resolutions to your attention:
WiinnicAB. The tvpe. foundries
of the United States , havej formed a
combination for tbe ' purpose or im
posing inch, tortus and regulations as
they choose upon trade; and, '
'Whores, They have , been mid
ara tialnc their orizauizatiOD to tbe
disadvantaue and injury of
their patrons, the printers and- pub'
lislmra of the oouutv; and.
"WhoroaB, Tho ordinary and per
manent difficulties in the way or od
taiuing type from foreign oountries
are such as to anora ampie proieoi
in in Amnricnn tvoe foundries with
out the addition of the safoguard of
a tariff J therefore,
Resolved, That the just interests
of the printers and publishers of the
Unitod States require that the tariff
on type motal and typo be removed.
"lietobsed, That the representa
tives of Wisoonsin in congress are
urgently requested to nse their in
fluence and efforts to secure aspoody
abolition of suoh tariff.
"Now that you have read the res
olutions, it is a supposable case that
you will feel that your next duty is
to throw them into the waste basket.
In the name of forty million people,
be the same more or less, I ask you
not to lose your cud, but reinitiate,
as it were, and think over the high
way robbery that is being practiced
upon your unsophisticated constitu
ent by the type founders, who are
foundering th'e newspapers. As it
is now they stand in the entrance of
the editorial sanctum and take the
money that oomes In on subscription
and only allow the publishers the
cord wood and farm produce. By
the promotion your alleged honora
ble body affords them iu the way of
tariff, they grapple the throat of
every newspaper in America, and
say "Kenio," while the newspaper
publisher van only return bis chips
to the dealer and say "O, h II"
Every article that is used by a news
paper man, exeunt second-hand ul
ster overcoats and liver, is protected
by the tariff that makes the cold
chills run up his spine.
Another thing that the associa
tion did not pass any resolution
about, but whiou they probably will
at the next meeting, if there are
enoutrh of them loft outaide of the
poor house to meet, . before they
meet ou that beautiful shore, is the
recent action of the manufacturers
of paper, who are endeavoring
sorew down the lid of the newspaper
ooflin which the type founders are
preparing for the grave. In the
lust thrcu mouths, by their own sweut
will, they have i un the price
paper np almost '10 per eent. There
is notbieiif W preveul them from do
ing it, as foreign manufactured
paper is kept out of the country
the tariff, Kwry . arliele that goes
into the ewietruotloo of rag paper,
except basawood, sweat jindiwnier,
han a tariff on it, The soda, the
asafiotida am! blue lnnxri, or what
ever is nraerl to deodorize undershirts
nd cast-off drnwera so that they
will smell jjood in a newspaper, baa
a corn on it in the' shape of a tariff
that the paper-manufacturing
three-card-montu chaps have an ex
cuse to bleed newspapers to the last
drop. " What the newspapers want,
and they believe it is not an un
reasonable demand, is the removal
of the tariff on type, on rags, on
paper, and on all chemicals used in
the manufacture of paper. In a
tariff on rage (if there is no tariff on
rags you better put one on, unless
you remove the tariff on the rest of
the stuff; if a tariff is a good thing
you oan't have too muoli of it), for
instance, whom do you protect?
Nobody but guttersnipe, rag pickers
and old maids who save up rags to
buy snuff, and tin peddlers who trade
in tin dippers and skimmers occa
sionally for a flour sack full of bad
smelling rags. Are the rag-pickers
and old maids your pnnoipal con
stituents? "The newspapers of the country
believe that they are entitled to
some consideration at your hands.
They are in many instances the in
struments through which many of
you have attained the positions you
now hold, and they never have got
muoh of anything from you except
patent office reports and agricultural
documents. They have set up
nights for you, and done dirty work
that may bar tbem out of all- par
ticipation in the chariot races in the
New Jerusalem, and they demand
that you proteot them from the
ravages of the type-founding and
paper-making grasshoppers, before
it is everlastingly too late.
"Not being one one of the'd d
literary fellers' so toucliingly allud
ed to by the great Senator Simon
Cameron, this epistle to you Corin
th inns may be a little raw. and not
as polished as it should be, but it
tries to represent tbe feeling of the
newspaper men ot Wisconsin in bin
guage that tho wayfaring man,
though a diabolical idiot, oau under
stand, and it means business.' I he
newspapers are desperate, and while
they don't want to go to the war
path, they feel that tbey have been
ravished about enough by the differ
ent tribes of beneficianeries of the
government. , If you great men will
pass a bill to give usTelief , you will
strike it rioh, and don't you forgot
it. Yours about mad enough,
GEORGE W. PECK

dispatcher. All trains run wild and

isn't expected to do anything ' but
amuse the pausen sol's. No, sir ;
was offered a pass, but I don't iik
the line. I don't like to travel on
road that has no teruiiuus. I aaked
a Division Superintendent where th
road run to, and he said he hoped
to din if he knew. I ankod him if
the General Superintendent could
tell, and he said he didn't believe
they had one, and if thoy had, he
didn't know any moro about the
road than the passengers. I asked
who he reported to, and ho Aaid "no
body." I asked a conductor where
he got his orders from, and he said
he didn't take his orders from any
living man or dead ghost. I asked
the engineer who he got his orders
from, he snid he'd smile to have any
one give him orders; he'd run that
train to suit himself, or he'd run it
into the ditch. I'm a railroad man
and don't oaro to run on a rond that
has no time or connections, runs no
where and has no Superintendent.
It may be all right.bnt its snspicious."

Engines carry a power of steam, and

double tanks at every station, and
there isn't an engine iu tbo shops

FOR RESTORING GRAY HAIR TO ITS
NATURAL VITALITY AND COLOR,
It is a most agreeable dressing, which.
Is at once harmless and effectual, for pre
serving the- hair. It restores, with the
gloss and freshness of youth, faded or gray,
light, and red hair, to a rich brown, or deep
black, as may be desired. By its use thin
hair Is thickened, and baldness often
though not always cured. It checks falling
of the hair immediately, and causes a new
growth in all cases where the glands are
not decayed; while to brashy, weak, or
otherwise diseased hair, It imparts vitality
and strength, and renders it pliable.
The Vioou cleanses the scalp, cures and
prevents the formation of dandruff; and,
by Its cooling, stimulating, and soothing
properties, it heals most if not all oi tne
humors and diseases peculiar to the scalp,
keeping it cool, clean, and soft, under
which conditions diseases oi the scalp ana
hair are Impossible.
Aa a Dressing for Ladies' Hair,
The Viqob is incomparable. It is color
less, contains neither oil nor dye, and will
not soil white cambric. It imparts an
agreeable and lasting perfume, and as an
article for tho toilet it is economical ana
unsurpassed in its excellence.
